The light and compact new mirrorless is a strong prospect for travelling photographers, vloggers and content creators, and with a price of £699 it looks like a steal.
Fujifilm has announced the addition of a new entry-level model to the X-Series – the X-A7. The new system weighs in at just 320g (body only), making it a promising option for photographers on the go and content creators of all varieties.

The X-A7 carries a newly developed 24.2MP APS-C image sensor, which promises not only good image quality but advanced autofocus performance with a massive 8.5 times more phase detection pixels across its surface than the X-A5.
In addition to still shooting, the new X-A7 possesses promising video capabilities. The camera will be able to shoot 4K video at 30fps with no crop, thanks once again to its new sensor.
When it comes to user interface, the X-A7 doesn’t seem to be lacking. A vari-angle 3.5in 16:9 touchscreen offers brightness equivalent to most smartphones as well as a new “Smart Menu”, which offers access to a host of still and video settings with just a tap on the screen.

- 60p Full HD video
- New creative shooting modes
- Wired communication with smartphones and tablets for approximately eight times faster data transfer than wireless.
The Fujifilm X-A7 will be available at the end of October with an RRP of £699.
